Still a fast card but lots of defective ones floating around.

Summary: The performance of XFX cards is always great when they work. I've purchased 5 XFX cards over the years because of this and the lifetime warranty. Unfortunately, I had to RMA 3 of those cards and now only consider XFX if the price is right.
Pros: In comparison to the HD 7870 that is now in my main rig, this still gets decent benchmarks and performance at 1920x1080. Has Windows 8 support. XFX support does honor their warranties.
Cons: I had lots of problems with my card when first purchased in October, 2010. AMD was having some major issues with their x64 Windows 7 drivers at the time, so I assumed it was a driver issue and went back to my Crossfire 4850s for a while. Turns out that it was actually a bad card and there were a ...
Summary: Card has been working perfect. It is a large card so be ready to sacrifice some of your PCI slots. In a mini tower with a mini mother board I was left with only 1 PCI slot free out of 4 slots. Just enough for my ethernet card to slide in. This was the only downside for me.
Pros: -Great for bitmining as long as you have good cooling. -Works well in crossfire as well for general use (single crossfire connector). -Have used it under windows & linux. -Great for video walls (generally without eyefinity that way you can use all the cards in the system). -single slot solution (...
Cons: Only a single crossfire connector per card. Only 5 mini-dp connections per card.
Summary: I have a Dell XPS 420 that came with an ATI Radeon HD 3870 that I needed a new video card for. A few months ago, I upgraded the RAM and installed 64-bit Windows 7. Since that upgrade, I had problems with the entire system locking up very frequently when I stopped playing an .mp4 file in full-screen.
